Nine beats Seven to yet another weekly TV ratings win

Nine’s Married at First Sight has yet again dominated the weekly TV ratings, with its Sunday commitment ceremony episode drawing a series high of 1.686m metro viewers. The popular reality show scored the top four slots for the most-watched shows of the week, according to OzTam data.

The huge ratings success meant Nine pulled ahead of Seven in the weekly audience share, taking 23.5% of the audience for its main channel, compared to Seven’s 20.9%. On a network level, Nine drew 32.0% of the audience, vs Seven’s 30.6%.

Seven’s most-watched show was its Sunday news offering, which attracted 1.035m viewers. Outside of current affairs, its most popular show was the Tuesday showing of My Kitchen Rules, with 806,000 metro viewers tuning in.

Ten failed to make an appearance in the top ten shows for the week, which was reflected in its main channel share of 9.2%, the same as last week’s. Its network share came in at 14.1%.

The ABC’s news offering and detective drama Vera both made it into the top 20 shows for the week, with 679,000 and 659,000 viewers respectively. The shows put ABC ahead of Ten on both a main channel and network share level, with 12.0% for the former and 16.7% for the latter.
